Generally speaking, you can add a Serial ATA drive (yes, you'll need drivers too) and leave your two IDE HDD's intact. However, some motherboards will require no HDD on Primary IDE master if you want to use Serial ATA. So, the answer becomes kinda maybe, but probably. We'll need to know what MoBo you have to give you an accurate response.
